What is Castor?

During his MD, our founder Derk Arts, identified a major problem in medical research. Due to the unavailability of affordable, easy to use data capture tools, researchers were deviating to non-compliant alternatives that reduce data quality, security, and reusability.

He invented Castor which enables researchers to easily capture and integrate high-quality data from any source on one compliant platform. Thousands of medical device, biotech, and academic researchers around the world are using Castor EDC (Electronic Data Capture), eCRF, ePRO, and eTMF to accelerate their studies.

As a team, our goal is to solve the world’s healthcare challenges with research data.
